Training - NYPTI

The New York Prosecutors Training Institute, Inc. (NYPTI), is a not-for-profit corporation created in 1995 to be the mutual assistance and continuing legal education division of the New York State District Attorneys Association. The Association, which is comprised of all of the 62 elected district attorneys and the attorney general, has been in existence since at least 1909. NYPTI's mission is to provide comprehensive continuing legal education, training, advice and assistance to New York State prosecutors.

NYPTI staff currently includes an Executive Director, Deputy Director, five attorneys, a CLE coordinator, a systems manager, a computer technician, a business administrator and two secretaries.

Services Offered: Legal Research and Mutual Assistance.
NYPTI has staff attorneys available to assist prosecutors by researching and writing briefs, answering to motions and or drafting memoranda on points of law.



As of December 31, 1998, attorneys admitted to practice in the State of New York must meet Continuing Legal Education ("CLE") requirements under a program announced and administered by the Office of Court Administration.

Attorneys admitted to the New York State Bar on or after October 1, 1997 must satisfy a "bridge-the-gap" transitional education program for newly admitted attorneys and all others must undertake a more flexible continuing legal education program.

The mutual assistance and continuing legal education division of the District Attorneys Association, the New York Prosecutors Training Institute, Inc. (NYPTI), and many district attorneys' offices throughout the state are, or are in the process of becoming, accredited providers of CLE courses to meet these requirements.

Details of the program, its requirements and administration may be found at the OCA web site: http://www.courts.state.ny.us/mcle.htm
